A seagull found in a sticky situation has been nursed back to health by Secret World Wildlife Rescue.
A member of the public called the East Huntspill charity after spotting the bird at Isleport Business Park in Highbridge covered in what appeared to be blood.
On arrival at the charity’s headquarters in New Road, animal carers found the gull was actually covered in strawberry jam from a discarded jar.
Head of external relations Samantha Hannay said: “Jammy, as he is known to Secret World staff, was given a thorough wash by our dedicated animal carers and will be released soon.”
Jammy was then left to dry out, fed and has now been released back into the wild.
Secret World rescued more than 500 gulls suffering from various illnesses and injuries in 2017.
